Few of us, however, know much about their hush-hush activities and even less about their close friendship with Jane Foster (1912-1979), an O.S.S.

worker who was indicted, but not tried as a Soviet operative. Jennet Conants A Covert Affair reveals the fascinating story of the couples high-level service (Julia reported directly to O.S.S. chief Wild Bill Donovan), but perhaps its most intriguing revelations concern the Childs staunch support of their embattled friend, a loyalty that eventually cost Paul his job. An eye-opener from the author of The Irregulars and Tuxedo Park. Editors recommendation.
